Smart TV App Stores



If you're an owner of a smart TV, it's always going to be important to be aware of Smart TV App Stores and which ones are going to give you the choices of the best Smart TV apps.   Apps extend the range of capabilities for Smart TVs and expand upon the enjoyment of using them. 

While your Samsung or Toshiba Smart TV might have come with a whole set of apps that were preinstalled on those manufacturers Smart TV portals, you could still be missing out on many other content options.  Apps have truly become the beating heart of new cutting edge smart technology, and will remain so until either easy to use and high quality access to web browsers can be made via your TV, or voice controlled TVs become mainstream. Until that time you'll most likely be visiting Smart TV app stores regularly to get new apps.

Finding the best Smart TV App Stores

There is only one Smart TV app store that your current Smart TV portal will be able to access, and that's the one offered by the manufacturer of your TV.  It is important that you figure out which brand of Smart TV to use, as this will influence just how many apps you can buy.  The abundance of apps will directly influence how well you can use your Smart TV. 

Samsung has come to the top of the list as having the most downloaded Smart TV apps, as well as the most apps available to be downloaded.  In 2011, Samsung was able to reach their one thousandth app in their Samsung App Store.  This turned out to make the headlines, as it became one of the largest Smart TV app stores in the industry.

What Are the Top 5 Apps?

The most common Apps are Google Maps, Hulu, YouTube, AccuWeather, and Texas Hold Ďem.  These apps alone offer the user a wide range of possibilities, as these are the same ones we often use on our own laptop computers.  You will most likely not have to buy these apps from one of the Smart TV app stores, for the simple fact that most new Smart TVís come preloaded with these apps.  It is not until you want to do extraordinary things with your Smart TV that you will have to buy new apps.  These apps are relatively cheap, but that depends on the Smart TV portal.  Unfortunately, not all portals are created equally, and some portals donít have stores that have popular and abundant apps.  Once again, if you go with a Samsung Smart TV, you wonít have that issue.

How To Buy

If you are looking to buy from one of the Smart TV app stores, then there should be some kind of button on the menu that will toggle you over to it.  Once you are there, then there should be a listing on what apps you might want to purchase.  These are listed by category.  Also, if you know the exact app for which you might be searching, then you can type in the name in the search bar and it will bring you to a list of narrowed options.  Not all Smart TV app stores operate the same way, but most of them do have the basics of this type of interface.  The key is that you reach your Smart TV app potential.
